5StarWines – the Book is the annual wine selection event organized by Veronafiere. Held just before the world’s largest international wine fair, the event is now in its fourth edition. 5StarWines is a three-day tasting that turns the spotlight on all the wineries that invest in improving their products. During the event, a jury of highly qualified industry professionals taste and rate the participating wines using a 1/100 scale. In the fourth edition, the “Agile” edition, more than 2,000 bottles took part in the selection process, of which, 847 were selected and thereafter included in the 5StarWines – the Book guide.

La versione “Agile” 2020

The 2020 edition of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls has been reworked to align with new health and safety guidelines put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19. So how did the event change? Samples were anonymised by the Team, and then sent to the judges in their respective countries where they carried out the blind tasting connected via videoconference. Judges scored the wines and submitted their assessments via WebApp under the supervision of the judges and a team based in Verona. Though redesigned, 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls 2020 continued to support the vitality of the wine sector, and we maintain that the transformation of the event into a digital format represented an opportunity. We continued to prioritize the health and wellbeing of all operators involved in the 5StarWines ecosystem while continuing to monitor the situation, and provided regular updates in coordination with the appropriate institutions.
